Refined sugar is known for being extremely addictive. It is scientifically proven that ‘Sugar Addiction’ has the same effects on the brain like the habit-forming drug has.
Sugar addiction is an extremely difficult habit to break, especially in the cases when the body and digestive tract become overwhelmed with yeast, candida, parasites, and sugar-loving bacteria. In order to prevent the cravings and this habit, you should undergo an actual detox process. Fortunately, many studies proved that using a natural method such as peppermint essential oil can help you in the case of sugar addiction.
According to a study conducted by Alan Hirsch MD, inhaling peppermint directly affects the satiety center, the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus, responsible for stimulating a sensation of fullness after a meal.

Peppermint is a hybrid mint, something between watermint and spearmint. Native to the Middle East and Europe, peppermint nowadays is widely grown in many religions around the world. Peppermint oil is definitely one of the most popular essential oils, and there is a good reason for it. It can provide numerous therapeutic benefits, including relieving indigestion and improving the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. It can decrease tuberculosis-induced inflammation, prevent asthma, clear up phlegm, ease herpes infections, manage stress, and treat nervous disorders.
